But you can still maintain it and submit the changes via send-pr.
Althought that could be slow and causes (probably un-needed) extra work
for others.

Another reason why a generic MAINTAINER is useful for me: I sometimes may
make a package for someone else, because I am interested at that time, but
I am not interested or willing to continue to maintain it.

By the way, where does packages@ go to? (I thought it was tech-pkg). I saw
a bunch of changes of MAINTAINER to tech-pkg, so I am wondering what is
the difference.
